Microneedling

Microneedling is the latest trend in this quest to stay youthful.

Microneedling is the insertion of very fine short needles into the skin for the purpose of rejuvenation to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore sizes brown spots, stretch marks and pigment issues.

Microneedling isn't exclusive to just the face area. The treatment can be done anywhere the skin on the body needs to be thickened, particularly those that have stretch marks, like the chest, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, back and other areas of the body.

3 to 6 sessions on average usually do the trick spaced about 4-6 weeks apart.
